Patachitra/Icon Painting of Odisha

Patachitra/Icon Painting of Odisha


Literally the cloth picture(s)/painting(s) of Odisha, the patachitras, according to O.C. Gangoly, represent (in their original form) the 'icon paintings of Puri...of the Cult of Jagannath'. In Gangoly's survey of Odishan paintings, patachitras or pata paintings are defined clearly as a 'school of painting' linked intimately with the cult of Lord Jagannath (a prominent and powerful deity) and with the Jagannath temple in Puri (Odisha).
